By analyzing Jesus' parables in the light of Jewish sources, a reviewer tells us, "Rabbi Stern is able to reveal layers of meaning within meaning, bringing deep wisdom and healing vision to the surface. This is precisely the kind of responsible scholarship that honors cultural and religious convictions and differences, and which can move the enterprise of faith forward. Anyone who seeks to understand Jesus' message, anyone who seeks to understand the Jewish roots of Christian faith, anyone seeking a Jewish perspective on the stories at Christianity's core, will do well to begin right here.” We will also discuss how Rabbi Stern’s book compares with Amy-Jill Levine’s book Short Stories by Jesus. All are welcome! MUSIC MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES All of our music ministry ensembles are welcoming new members in the new year. Check out the opportunities on the “Ministries” tab of the parish website.

La Página Hispana Queridos Parroquianos, Si tienen ganas de ver algunas fotos maravillosas de la Misa de la Epifanía pueden ir al sitio flickr.com, ¡inscríbanse y vayan al sitio de la parroquia!, ignacio02467. Como saben, he estado tratando de facilitar conversaciones en inglés y en Español para miembros de la comunidad que tienen ganas de practicar un idioma. En este momento hay diez voluntairos, anglo-parlantes que están dispuestos a ayudar a miembros de la comunidad latina en la práctica del idioma. Algunos de ellos tienen el interés de ayudar a hablar inglés. Otros también quieren aprender Español. Si tiene ganas de practicar y mejorar su habla, por favor déjenmelo saber. Habrá una lista en el Friary Room para que se puedan participar. Necesito saber su flexibilidad durante la semana. Algunas personas están disponible durante el día, otras el fin de semana. Les invito a venir a una junta a la una y media el 1 de febrero en la sala de coro para averiguar más sobre este programa Como es de costumbre, he ido a Jamaica por ocho días y no estaré presente durante dos domingos en la Misa. Les digo que extrañaré nuestras celebraciones pero Victoria Urbaneja de la comunidad va a acompañarnos y me ayudará a recordar a mis amigos de Boston.
